Skip to comments.What kinds of ads did you run into from the Romney campaign vs the Obama campaign? (vanity)

My impression from reading campaign coverage is that Romney's were upbeat and positive, whereas Obama hammered Romney at every turn. What was your experience?
Romney’s were upbeat and soft with platitudes.
Romney’s PAC’s ad were devastating.
The Obama ad about classroom size was a head scratcher as well.
What Romney ads? I don’t remember seeing any here, but then, I live in central NY State. It was Obama ads, all the time.
we were out campaigning for weeks. Too busy to watch TV. How ‘bout you?
Never saw a Romney ad on anything but YouTube. Saw a couple Romney PAC ads on TV a couple days before the election.
I don't watch TV, so I have no idea what ads were airing, although my assumption is that TV programs featured the usual free advertising for the Dems via anti-conservative scripts.
Liberals know an ugly election game will make many conservatives staying at home.
The two most important, and talked about, strategies that never transpired.
Death Star (Ad Campaign)
Both failures. Game over.
Hubby often watches movie trailers and other video clips on Yahoo. Every time he clicked on one, an Obama ad would play before the trailer. He finally quit watching them due to his annoyance. He wanted to know how much those ads cost and did the campaign have to pay per view.
Don’t watch TV because there’s no time for it. Occasionally, I’ll catch a telenovela on Univision when I go to bed. My impression from that experience was that the Obama campaign and Moveon.org had so many anti-Romney ads on there, repeated over and over...for a long, long time. Only the last week did I see an Anti-Obama ad, which ended with “nos traiciono” if that’s spelled right. He betrayed us... which Crossroads put on. Only 1 Romney campaign ad...and it was unmemorable. Romney was painted as a devil over and over for hispanics for a long time. I couldn’t see a way he could counter that.
Other than that half hour or so before I fall asleep, I have no time for TV. Glad those are gone now.
Medved said yesterday that Obama’s campaign and the Super PACs aligned with him ran ads that were 85% negative. And they WORKED.
Since most everything I watch is on the internet, I can say I only saw Obama smothering everything, especially on election day. I heard nothing Romney on the radio.
Everytime an ad ran for one candidate, there was one for the other. I couldn’t tell much difference other than names. We usually turned the channel as soon as one came on...thank God for remotes
The bulk of Obama ads that were on here showed up on the SyFy Channel. Kind of appropriate, because since he first took office, I’ve felt like I’m in the Twilight Zone.
I’m in new York. Saw nothing but obama ads, no romney ads. At first the obama ads were nothing but negative attack ads in romney. It wasn’t until a week or two before the election did the obama ads get softer and stopped mentioning romney and started pushing obama. “5 million jobs, created. Our auto manufacturing companies, back.” Etc, etc
Hey American Red Cross, elections have consequences and the next time you want my charity contribution, guess who won't be listening!
Obama's ads were about Roe vs Wade and Planned Parenthood.
Anyone with half a brain donating to the American Red Cross should be ashamed. With all the local scandals across the country, the redirected funds and the "missing" (stolen) donations, the tainted blood scandal, they way they treated the military in the past... they deserve to ROT.
